BUZZ Player

Great Multimedia Player BUZZ Player. 5.0.2 is Out – But not Necessarily Worth Updating to

In many of my older articles (like this one), I've praised BUZZ Player. ($3.99) and BUZZ Player HD. ($3.99). Up until 4.0.2, which royally messed up the player's MKV playback capabilities, making it one of the worst choices for MKV playback.

(A quick note: note the full stop after the name of both the iPhone and the iPad-specific apps. I've explained the cause for this seemingly amusing name HERE.)

In the meantime, newcomers to the iOS multimedia player scene, nPlayer ($4.99; read my latest review) have become the most important “go to” player for everyone looking for MKV playback and not wanting to play back DTS audio.

Matroska media containers are extremely popular among video freaks. They offer by far the most flexible video storage capabilities in many cases, such as for storing animated subtitles widely used in karaoke and anime. When you rip your own Blu-ray discs with the excellent MakeMKV, MKV is the container the app exports your disc to.
